11. O Heart, Awake

1 O heart, awake; one loving word
For Him who bore thy every fear;
Shall not thy voice of praise be heard
With those who now are gathered here!

O heart, awake; He died for thee;
O heart, awake; it cannot be
Thou hast for Him no gift to bring,
No word to speak, no song to sing.

2 O heart, awake; O heart of mine,
Where now thy pledge to do His will?
Canst thou forget His love divine!
Then why so cold and silent still? [Refrain]

3 O heart, awake; the tempter spurn;
Thy gracious Lord with joy behold;
O heart, awake, arise, return,
Nor leave again thy Saviour’s fold. [Refrain]

4 O heart, be glad; O heart, rejoice;
The cloud was dark, but now ‘tis o’er;
And thou canst sing with tuneful voice,
Of Him who doth thy soul restore. [Refrain]
